Domaine Royet

France

Jean-Claude and his son Vincent now represent the third and fourth generation of the estate, which was started by Jean-Claude’s grandparents in the 1930’s. Jean-Claude’s parents took over in 1968, doubling the vineyard size from 4 to 8 hectares. Like their father, they continued to just produced red wines that were sold to neighbouring wineries. Jean-Claude joined in 1984 and he was able to convince his parents to add some vineyards for white grapes to produce both still and sparkling wines.

Over the past thirty years, the estate established a very good reputation but are still a true insider’s tip, also owing to the fact that the winery is located in small, lesser known appellation of Côte du Couchois.  An impressive 90% of the wines are sold directly at the winery to visiting consumers from all over Europe and also to local restaurants. Only 10% of the wines get exported – to Japan, England, and now to Alberta.
